Looks at this face. Tell the truth…would you trust this guy?
This is what Colony says about him:
Proxy Snyder is the pragmatic and charismatic leader of the Transitional Authority in Los Angeles. After the Arrival, he proves that he is a true politician and leads all aspects of the Occupation. Armed with the Redhat army and ever-present drones, Proxy’s Transitional Authority is tasked with keeping order and stability in Los Angeles.
Proxy knows that his Occupation movement needs someone as strong and valuable as Will Bowman to fight alongside them in order to combat the growing threat from the Resistance. Ever the cunning politician, Proxy also knows exactly how to make people do what he wants.
But me? I think he goes beyond cunning politician into the cleaned up street thug kinda guy. He says he sees opportunity and that he plans on taking advantage of it. IN every Post-apocalypse book I read, there is one of these guys. He has seen a chance to make a difference- not for humanity- but for himself- and he’ll do anything he needs to do to take that chance.
That being said, so far, in the beginning I don’t hate him. (yet) I’m waiting to see just how far he pushes Will to get what he wants.
